Xcal 2, 5 changes left....

I was digging around on my Xcal 2 getting a little more familiar with it and I come across the info screen and when I started to back out of it, it brought up another message that said 5 changes left-stock tune I figure the stock tune means that I have it programmed to stock, becuase I do, but what does 5 changes left mean? I switched it over to the 93 oct tune and then back to see if it would change, and it did not. Any help on this one?

You are only allowed to change which vehicle it is tuning 5 times.

^^^Yep you are only allowed to tune 5 different vehicles, so no worries
Unless that is what you will be doing...

Ahh, gotcha! I kind of thought that maybe they had it where you could only switch between tuned and not tuned so many times. I would be pissed if that were the case.

So if I sold the Xcal, then it would be good for 4 more changes once the new owner got it? Does it store more than one factory ECM/PCM flash in it? In other words.....if I sell it, will the new owner get my original flash with my VIN in it? It's not that big of a deal, but I wouldn't want that.

Thread jack.... I had 4 unlocks on mine when i got it. I uploaded a 93 tune on my car. After awhile i got all pissy and changed it back to stock to see if i could tell any difference. Noticed it went down to 3 unlocks. Changed it back to the 93 tune... Now what im getting from u guys is if i go back to stock again, it shouldnt take another unlock away....right?

From what I gather, it only takes away if you use it on another car. In other words......they are good for 5 cars total. After that, I don't know.
